Happy Monday

I've been wanting a little flower pot for the longest time but have not gotten around to it till now. Actually it was an unexpected little present which makes this little beauty even more special. Now I don't actually know if I've got a green thumb, my gardening experience being pretty much limited to viewing gardens but I'm so happy to give it a try!

I love hortensias. They've got cheerful little faces and I adore the two tone color pink color on mine. I decided to put mine right outside our dining room window sill.  The pink splash against the iron grill and the trees outside makes for a cheerful view. And its crazy how from one minute to the other, all the trees on our street have decided to suddenly bud in full force. Ah spring!

Here's to a lovely week everyone!


  1. Lovely cluster of flowers! And very apt for Pink Princess :)

  2. pink blooms suit you. these hortensias are nice. i see part of your wooden shutters. lovely. :)

  3. Lovely flowers. They also remind me of hydrangeas/milflores. I'm wondering if hortensias change colors the way hydrangeas do...

  4. LOL. Jokes on me. Apparently, they're one and the same. A rose is a rose by any other name, but interesting how the hortensia comes in so many other. In Manila, they're more popularly referred to as milflores, but in the Visayas/Mindanao, people call them milyon. ;)
